Jackson just cant seem to get enough of toys. Whenever I give him a new toy, he breaks it in less than five minutes! People at my barn have recommended buying toys from the dollar store. Any suggestions?? Jackson really likes squeaky toys, when I will give a toy to him, he will just lie down on the floor and sqeak it non-stop, it drives me crazy! He tends to break them 5 minutes after I give it to him.

Brody doesn't play with toys very much, Lilly is the destroyer of some. Wubba Kong she chewed off all the "legs" I don't think she liked them dragging under her. Once they were gone, all was good. So they play with half chewed up toys until they are either a danger to them, or completely destroyed.

Antle is awsome, not cheap 10 for a big peice where i get them, but compared to adora favorite Bully stick which last 10-30 min antler is a sure winner. They last about a month and get chew numerous times a day. you don't get yucky bits on the floor like raw hid, they don't get stinky, they are safer than rawhide and bones, as they don't chip and they can't brake off chunks, they last long so you see them get down to the size where you need to take away and not have to alway supervise or worry. I think it works well becuase she isn't destroying her toys anymore, and it kept adora occupied for hours when we got her fixed(which is the first time we tried it).

My toy box consists of shreds of material -- former stuffed toys, "indestructible" ripstop nylon toys, some interesting ball/rope toy combos that are now mere pieces of string and oddly shaped bits of polyester. My guys don't like Kongs unless they are full of food. And Bertie has, at his best, destroyed a toy in the store, WHILE I was paying for it. It's a local store, they know us well, so she kindly traded it for a new one -- and he had a hole in the new one before we were out the door. I read somewhere that pound for pound, Corgis have some of the strongest jaws in dogdom, and I believe it. So we play with the shreds. In fact, Bertie's favorite toy is a shredded former frisbee that no longer flies. But he still loves to chew on it and chase it. And we won't discuss what it smells like. I may have to get a new one -- which will be shredded in minutes, but still well loved, I'm sure.

Nutmeg and Cinnamon have eaten 3 dogs beds, countless stuffed toys, and several flip flops. I just got them the stuffless skunk, see how long that lasts. I use the kongs for peanut butter and also put a nylabone into the end so that they have something for leverage. Highly recommend the antlers. http://antlerchews.com/

My dogs only want the toys they can rip apart. They will not touch the hard chew toys....unless there is peanut butter! lol

Jackson has a couple of kong toys. We recently have gotten him the "KONG WUBBA". It seems to be pretty durable!

I recently found something that Bailey can't destroy. It is a hard plastic cube that you put kibble or small treats into. They keep busy pushing it around, trying to get the food out. You can adjust how much/little the treats will roll out. It's noisy, but better than tearing toys up. I have heard some bad things about any toy that is not specifically made for dogs. There could be a fire retardant on the fabric that is poisonous to dogs along with small plastic parts that hold the toy together.

My dogs hate Kongs. Won't touch them unless there is peanut butter in them.

However, through trial and error we have found a variety of rubber balls that work. Also, PetSmart and some other stores sell fake fleece, unstuffed pigs and scotties with squeakers. We carefully watch for the moment of squeaker removal and take away the squeaker (to avoid chocking), then let them carry around the fleece toys. They typically last about a month and are only about $4.

We also give sterilized marrow bones, though there is some risk of slab fracture to the teeth.

For a cheap toy, you can toss an empty plastic water bottle, soda cup, or plain brown cardboard box (to be safe, we don't give any boxes that had electronics or leather goods, since the boxes MAY have been treated with something to keep moisture out).

I occasionally buy cheap stuffed DOG toys from the dollar store, but do worry about dyes/ chemicals etc.

I agree on dollar store toys..... get a frappucino instead with the money! Fox goes through the toys my husband brings home within the hour (seriously!). Kongs do last longer.... but, alas, are still defeated in the end. Next, we are going to try the "Extreme Kong" and see how "fang" does with those. Same with dog beds.... even the "Kong" chew resistant bed. Fox gnawed off the Kong logo patch the first night.... complete oral fixation. Good luck!!

I don't know if I would by toys from the dollar store - if I were going to spend the money, I would rather invest in a good, solid toy that would last (like a red or black kong for $10-15) than spend $10 on individual dollar store toys that will last 2 minutes each. Plus, they aren't made for dogs and you'd have to be very careful about what he eats and swallows if/when he destroys it.

Casey eats beef hooves, and they last her quite a long time. I know some people don't like giving them to the dog because they say they can crack their teeth....but a dog's gotta chew on something, if you know what I mean. Casey hated nylabones - the only thing she likes to chew on are actual bones and beef hoofs. She's ALWAYS (24/7) got a beef hoof available to be chewed on. Sometimes she just walks around with one in her mouth. It's her go-to chew toy, which I am grateful for because it's edible, it takes a while to eat, and it keeps her from destroying my house or eating and swallowing her plastic chew toys.
